First Aid Course Brisbane and CPR Course Brisbane

With a nationally accredited first aid and CPR course from Fit Education, you’ll be able to confidently manage emergency situations and provide a critical first aid response to anyone suffering a casualty. This certificate is a minimum requirement for workplace first aid compliance and covers the most common workplace injuries and illnesses. On completion of the certificate, you will confidently be able to manage the casualty, provide life support and manage the incident until further help arrives on the scene.

Fit Education’s First Aid Certificate is the current government-approved course and the generalist first aid course that employers in Australia require. It is suitable for both employees and individuals who would like to be able to provide first aid in an emergency. The course is also suitable for anyone needing to renew their certificate, as currently all first aid certifications must be renewed every 3 years.

The Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation – CPR course gives you skills to perform correct CPR on a person who is unconscious and not breathing normally. This comprehensive training will give you the confidence in your knowledge and skills to perform CPR on an adult, child or infant. You will also learn alternative methods for delivering rescue breaths and how to manage a victim of drowning. Currently, all CPR certifications must be renewed annually.

All qualified fitness professionals are required to hold a current first aid and CPR certification

If you are studying the Certificate III in Fitness or Certificate II in Sport & Recreation, first aid and CPR training is compulsory. You will also be required to renew your CPR certification annually, and your first aid certification every 3 years to ensure your skills remain current. If these certifications are not maintained, your insurance may not be valid.


There are no entry requirements for the first aid course Brisbane.

“I was surprised and delighted at how easy the process was to complete the theory component of my First Aid course. It was seamless, written in simple, everyday language and the support provided by the trainer was helpful and prompt. I definitely would recommend this on-line course as it provides the same learning outcome but from the comfort of your own computer.”
